azure_search_client_library_logo-264x264I’m happy to announce that ASCL (Azure Search Client Library) has received a new update, namely 0.8.5522.36498. Using the newer version you can now enjoy suggestion algorightms without worrying about the little bugs :), use suggestions using the freshly announced ‘Suggestor’ functionality, use Tag boosting and take complete advantage of the multi-lingual support of Azure Search.

Along with this update I’ve also written two new ‘Getting started’ projects which help you better understand how to use ASCL.

Happy downloading https://www.nuget.org/packages/AzureSearchClient/0.8.5522.36498.

DevSum 15I’ve received earlier this morning a very nice e-mail from the DevSum 2015 committee stating that I’ve been accepted as a speaker for this year’s conference. Therefore, if you happen to be in Stockholm between May 25th and 27th, I’d love to see you at the Clarion Hotel Sign at DevSum 2015.

DevSum is a yearly conference, already at the 10th edition, taking place at the end of May in Stockholm, which also happens to be (according to www.devsum.se) ‘the largest and most enjoyable .NET conference’ in Sweden :-). During the two-day conference, attendees get a chance to learn about .NET, Azure, Architecture, XAML, Puppet, JavaScript and more from a panel of 40 Swedish and international speakers (actually, Scott Hanselman himself happened to be one of the speakers of the previous editions). My presentation is going to be about ‘Patterns For Scalability In Microsoft Azure Applications’; even though I went through this subject a dozen times already during the previous 12 months, I’ll put together a revamped presentation with some extra ‘knowledge’ I learned from my experience with cloud computing.

See you in May!
